Eastern Mirror Desk
Dimapur, June 7: Staff of the State Bank of India (SBI) in Dimapur got new residential complex on at the Bank colony. With the main idea to ‘easily’ accommodate the staff and their families coming from outside Nagaland, the move-in ready complex was inaugurated on June 7.
According to a document provided by the bank, Dimapur area has 15 SBI branches. As most of its staff were usually from outside the state, the complex was necessary for them. The facility would give security to the families of SBI staff living in Dimapur and accommodate many families at one place.
The SBI’s chief general manager of the Northeast circle, PVSLN Murty, was the chief guest of the day.
Speaking about the new building, Murty has assured security and satisfaction of the residents during their stay in Dimapur. The place, being only for the staff and their families, he said there would not be much problem. In fact, with spouse and children around, he said it would make a good company with lots of activities.
Speaking about the marketing status in the state, Murty said, ‘it is a major issue.’ Further, he said ‘all productions from the state are organic but the price which people are getting out of the products is not enough.’ At such a situation, he said the bank is ‘ready to work with the locals’ and help the people.
The chief general manager also encouraged his colleagues to work hard and ‘generate more income,’ as he was of the view that bank is passing through a crucial stage at the moment.
The residential complex was stated to have been the first of its kind in the state. The new building comprised of five blocks with 44 flats. The land was stated to have been donated by the state government to the SBI in 1993. In Kiphire district, the land was said to have been already donated by the state government to bank.
